Wondering what’s new and next for The Network. Intuitive? There’s been so much amazing progress in analytics and automation since we ushered in the era of intent-based networking. You’ve likely experienced firsthand how this unique approach, built on Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA), enables you to simply and quickly understand all that’s happening across your network — right from the one-stop DNA Center shop.

While the integration is still ongoing, the beginning stages are complete — and we’re so excited to unveil a single operational dashboard for all your Cisco and Meraki assets. Discover the details in the latest installment of the #CiscoChat Podcast.
